SaltwaterTaffy

SaltwaterTaffy is an nmap wrapper library for .NET, which aims to provide a simple interface for host discovery, firewall detection, and port scanning. This library was partially inspired by nmap4j.

Dependencies

SaltwaterTaffy utilizes DotNMap to parse nmap's XML output format. A DLL is provided in lib.

Usage & Examples

Using the library is (hopefully) fairly simple. A demo project is included in SaltwaterTaffy.Demo, and some examples are provided below.

Host discovery

Host discovery will yield a collection of Host objects, each containing information about the discovered host.

    using SaltwaterTaffy;
    using SaltwaterTaffy.Container;

    class Program
    {
        public static void Main(string[] args)
        {
            var target = new Target("192.168.0.0/24");
            var result = new Scanner(target).HostDiscovery();
            // do something with the result
        }
    }

Port scan (TCP SYN scan)

    using SaltwaterTaffy;
    using SaltwaterTaffy.Container;

    class Program
    {
        public static void Main(string[] args)
        {
            var target = new Target("192.168.1.101");
            var result = new Scanner(target).PortScan(ScanType.Syn);
            // do something with the result
        }
    }

A more advanced scan

    using SaltwaterTaffy;
    using SaltwaterTaffy.Container;

    class Program
    {
        public static void Main(string[] args)
        {
            // target can be a string, an IPAddress or an IEnumerable of either
            var target = new Target("192.168.1.0/24");
            var scanner = new Scanner(target);

            // multiple calls to scanner will always exclude this host
            scanner.PersistentOptions = new NmapOptions {
                {NmapFlag.ExcludeHosts, "192.168.0.12"}
            };
            var result = scanner.HostDiscovery();
            // do something with the result
        }
    }
